March Event Announcement: Favorite Recipes: Mela/ Carniwal Food

Here I am back with another event. The event “Favorite Recipes” is very popular in the food blogging world. I will like to thank the talented blogger Swathi Iyer who blogs from  Zesty South Indian Kitchen for allowing me to guest host the event on Merry Tummy.

For the theme I have chosen it to be Mela/Carniwal food. I am sure we all have been to some mela at least once in our life. When, we think of mela the beautiful memories of our childhood rushes back. A carnival is always so lively with balloons, beautiful tents, merry-go-round,  fun rides and of course who can forget that tasty food.

This month you have to cook and post the recipes that we eat or are sold in the mela/carniwal. Some of the examples are ragda patties, moong ki daal kacheela, pav bhaji,tava pulav, chaat etc etc. I want you to post in only Indian recipes and not the dishes that are sold in an international carnival (hot dog, burgers, falafel etc are not allowed). However the ones with Indian twist are allowed, like indo-chinese noodles.

So ladies, put on your aprons and cook the mela food. I am sure that I will see some new and innovative recipes.


Rules for the event:
  1. You must cook and post the recipe on your blog pertaining to the theme Indian Mela Food.
  2. Looking for fresh entries and to try out new recipes. So, no archived posts will be entertained. Your post has to be in March 2013.

  4. Only Vegetarian recipes will be allowed. Eggs can be used for baking.
  5. The event has to be linked back as Favorite Recipes Event announced at Merry Tummy.
